For my link archive: 3 ways to hide drive letters.


  1. Using diskman.msc (Disk Management) by removing drive letters or/and changing the mount point to be in another drive.
  2. Using regedit.exe (or other Registry Editor like reg.exe) for a bitmap of drive letters to add a value named [WayBackNoDrives to

    • locally for the current user to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
  3. Using secpol.msc (Local Security Policy editor, or find it through gpedit.msc) to add a security policy similar to the registry.
